How Caffeine in Coffee Helps You Lose Weight

It’s official, caffeine in coffee helps you lose weight.   A lot of people drink coffee as an appetite suppressant and caffeine is a central ingredient in “fat-burning” or “weight-loss” supplements.  However now scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign documented an anti-obesity effect from caffeine extracted from coffee.  In summary, caffeine in coffee promoted reduction of body fat accumulation in animals fed with a high-fat-high-sucrose diet. Caffeine downregulated the expression of genes that code for fatty acid synthase (FASN), an enzyme that helps produce long-chain fatty acids, and lipoprotein lipase (LPL), an enzyme with a key role in breaking down triglycerides. For a detailed examination on how caffeine in coffee helps you lose weight, review the study which is published at, Journal of Functional Foods, (click here).
